(Formerly Inreach)

The Info WG aims to improve internal communications within Occupy Boston. We believe that enhanced communication and coordination within our community will allow us to advance the Occupy movement more effectively.

We assess the communication structures and gaps of the OB activist community and develop forums to enhance communication between working groups and individuals. We currently are meeting on Wednesday's at 5pm.

Right now we are working on developing a central Communication Hub (CommHub), a database run by OB volunteers to collect, organize and disseminate useful information for working group members. We believe the the successful implementation of this tool will allow us become a more cohesive social movement.

Please contact to join the effort.

Our meetings are every Wednesday 5:30 - 7pm at United for a Fair Economy (29 Winter St., Boston)

Meeting agendas are here: [1]
